Qualification scenario for Spain and Germany as 'Group of Death' lives up to the hype.

Spain are the favourites to progress from Group E, requiring a win or draw against Japan.

A defeat would see Luis Enrique's side still go through on goal difference unless Germany loses to Costa Rica.

Germany must pick up three points to stay in contention and would qualify as long as Spain defeat Japan. 

A draw in the game between Spain and Japan or a win for Hajime Moriyasu's Japanese team would see goal difference needed.

A win for Japan over Spain would take Moriyasu's side through to the Round of 16 as they registered a stunning win over Germany. 

A draw – coupled with a stalemate for Germany – would also see the Samurai Blue make the knockout stage.

Costa Rica would earn a last-16 spot with victory and a point would also take them through if Spain overcome Japan.

A draw in both games or a defeat for Costa Rica sees them eliminated.
